Susan Wojcicki, a Google veteran and currently the head of Google's YouTube business, has joined Salesforce.com’s board of directors, the company said on Monday. The move happened last Friday.

Wojcicki has been with YouTube since February 2014, after leaving her post as senior VP of Advertising & Commerce. She’s one of the most experienced executives in online advertising, having worked on multiple Google ad platforms, including AdWords, AdSense, DoubleClick, and Google Analytics, for 12 years.

"Susan is an extraordinary executive who has been instrumental in helping to build the world's largest consumer cloud company, where scale, reliability and security are of critical importance.  Her experience will make her an outstanding addition to our board,” Salesforce.com CEO Marc Benioff said in a statement.

With the addition of Wojcicki, Salesforce.com now has 11 board members. Aside from Benioff and Wojcicki, Salesforce’s board includes some high profile names, including General Colin Powell, the former US Secretary of State; and Maynard Webb, a long-time entrepreneur and investor and currently the chairman of Yahoo.

Why do we punish the victims of hacking?

2017-09-21 09:00:00 +0100

Hacks occur every 39 seconds, with 95% of them targeting governments, retailers and the tech industry. If the hackers are caught, they'll face prison time under the Computer Misuse Act. More often than not, the businesses who are victims of those attacks expose themselves to punishment of their own. The laws that determine the duty of protection owed to businesses and their customers is both vague and broad, making them question just how much protection...
